Let me start by saying this hotel isn't luxury and is probably just useful for the airport and for people who have a few hours between connecting flights in Melbourne. We arrived here at around 2am after a long 35hr journey from Europe. It was easy to find, just a short walk from the terminal. Checkin was all automatic via... More

When your plane arrives late and you need to connect with another flight next day, this is ideal. Small but clean with everything one would need in it. Excellent breakfast buffet and friendly management and staff. The rate is great in comparison to the other hotels around Melbourne airport which are ridiculously high, at least twice the price.

The family checked into 2 rooms of iBis Budget Melbourne Airport because we needed to catch a morning flight the next day. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The toilets really looked and functioned like those on board cruise ship cabins. Bring your own toiletries and disposable cutlery if you want to eat something in the room... More

As a stopover product this place ticks most of the boxes well enough to make it a contender on location and price...Clean, functional rooms with a decent standard of comfort (though nothing luxurious) together with proximity to Melbourne international make this Ibis one to strongly consider if you're on a layover. Laundry facilities, communal fridges, free tea and coffee all... More

Fit for the purpose. A small room, but big enough for an overnight stay close to the airport. Sutably fitted-out. Quiet. Basic but functional bathroom. Comfortable bed. I'd stay here again. The walk to the terminal would be a problem in the rain - no shelter.

I booked this hotel because it was the cheapest around Melbourne airport as I arrived late from the UK and was flying to Sydney in the morning. It is clean, very basic but still paid $125 for one night. It was about a 10 min walk and as it was 11.00pm I was expecting to enter a code to get... More

We booked this hotel as ouir plane from the UK was arriving in the early hours. We turned up at the hotel ( about 10 mins walking distance from the arrival terminal as long as your case has wheels or you use a trolley) after a very long flight. The hotel has no reception and you need to input a... More
